World Cup Optimization Algorithm
Updated 26 Apr 2020
This code presents a new optimization algorithm based on human society’s intelligent contests. FIFA World Cup is an international association football competition competed by the senior men’s national teams. This contest is one of the most significant competitions among the humans in which people/teams try hard to overcome the others to earn the victory. In this competition, there is only one winner which has the best position rather than the others. This paper introduces a new technique for the optimization of mathematic functions based on FIFA World Cup competitions. The main difficulty of the optimization problems is that each type of them can be interpreted in a specific manner. World Cup Optimization (WCO) algorithm has a number of parameters to solve any type of problem due to defined parameters.
